These solitary bees are innocuous and stingless and no actions are available or necessary. As a rule of thumb you won’t have an active wasps’ nest until at the very minimum mid to late May as a result of the life cycle of the wasp. Any viewed before mid-May will be bees with no doubt whatsoever.
Few insects trigger concern as the wasp with a lot of people reacting very seriously to their stings. Regrettably every year in the UK individuals do pass away due to of receiving a wasp sting, often after unintentionally disturbing the nest.

Nest Growth through the season
A wasps’ nest commences at the end of spring typically around April when the queens awaken and commence nest building. In contrast to honey bees, only queens survive the winter time, the rest of the workers having died off the previous winter.
The queen develops a miniature nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she makes by combining rotting wood with saliva. This early nest is approximately the proportions of a golf ball, inside it she lays approximately twenty eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she nurtures with various grubs until they pupate and grow into fully fledged wasps. These early wasps will then take control of nest constructing while the queen will remain within the nest producing eggs.
This whole process will require a few weeks and it’s unusual indeed to come across a wasps’ nest prior to June. The most active period of nest formation is normally the month of June and AAAA wasps’ nest control always calculate that the wasping season generally starts about the 3rd week in June.
If left alone the nest carries on to progress over the summer time and depending on weather conditions and accessibility to food will consist of between 5000 – 30,000 wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they’re rewarded by the larvae which express a sweet sticky material that the wasps want and therefore this is their motivation to feed their young.
Up to approximately August time the nest forms only unfertile females but as the days begin to shorten it generates its last set of larvae which are new queens and males. Ordinarily a nest will create around 2,000 new queens. Normally these brand new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the cold months of winter.
It’s at this time when wasps have a tendency to be their most problematical. When the nest is no longer producing young, the worker wasps are missing their sweet fix and begin needing sweet foods. They start feeding on rotting fruit and as they are basically unemployed they turn into a nuisance pest. It is now when the majority of stings occur. It’s also the time when coping with a wasps’ nest becomes considerably more difficult since when the queens come out they will cease to return back to the nest and so are not killed by any pesticide within it.
At this time of the year we have numerous accounts of people getting a large number of wasps inside of their houses every single day, these are the new queens searching for hibernating sites. Many Local Authorities at this time of the season will tell enquirers to leave the nest be as ‘it should disappear soon’. This is often in reality the very worst thing to do given that the queens will emerge making the total process more tricky.
Once this process has begun, typically from mid-September, it is normally essential to perform extra work, for example smoking or fogging the attic space to get rid of these queens which of course carries further charges. The best suggestion AAAA wasps’ nest control can give is when you have got a wasps’ nest get it removed before September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left to its own devices a wasps nest can last up until the first main freeze of winter, they remain later in to the the autumn months than some people believe.
AAAA wasps’ nest control normally tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into early winter and the latest we’ve destroyed an active nest was Christmas eve! When the wintertime comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die out. The nest itself is then spent, it will never be made use of again and for that reason there isn’t any gain at all in attempting to get rid of it.
More about wasps
A wasps’ stinger is a modified egg laying tube and therefore only female wasps are able to sting but very few would like to gamble on guessing the right sex of the wasp they are seeing.
In The Uk we now have three variations of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent incomer from Europe which arrived here here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more types of wasps in Britain however they tend not to bother us as unwanted pests.
We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in Britain, mainly confined to the southerly counties but AAAA wasps’ nest control did handle a hornets’ nest within the Knutsford area in the summer of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever encountered this far north.
There is no need for AAAA wasps’ nest control to distinguish the species of wasp we’re dealing with to be able to destroy the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a very similar biology and react to absolutely the exact same treatment.
What governs the number and size of wasps’ nests isn’t the severity of the previous winter but the weather in the spring. The hibernating queens can survive any amount of cold but the worst of all circumstance for them is just what transpired in 2012. There was a very early warm period for about 6 weeks from mid-February and all over March. This helped bring the wasp queens from hibernation early but sadly for them it turned cold and wet and then there wasn’t any food for them so they starved. As a consequence the summer of 2012 came to be a dreadful summer for wasps.
